80+ PCS PETRIFIED WOOD, TEXAS EOCENE (50MY)
YOU ARE BIDDING ON MORE THAN 80 (I COUNT ABOUT 81) PIECES OF PETRIFIED WOOD FOR ONE MONEY.  THEY ARE VERY BEAUTIFUL AND INTERESTING!!  I FOUND THEM IN SITU, AND SLIGHTLY BELOW THE EXPOSED SURFACE IN BRAZOS COUNTY, TEXAS.  OUTCROP MAPS SHOW THE SANDY MIDDLE EOCENE SERIES (APPROX. 50 MILLION YEARS OLD) OUTCROPS IN THAT VICINITY.  SINCE THERE ARE ALSO KNOWN SMALL COAL SEAMS IN THE AREA, I SUSPECT THEY ARE FROM THE CLAIBORNE GROUP, POSSIBLY THE FORMATION IS YEGUA OR COOK MOUNTAIN, I AM NOT SURE.  PALEOBOTONY IS NOT MY FORTE BUT THE TEXTURE OF SOME OF THE PIECES SUGGEST TO ME A CONIFER OF SOME TYPE. THEY ARE PERMINERALIZED (CHERT OR FLINT) SO THE DETAIL OF TEXTURE IS VERY GOOD.  THEY RANGE IN SIZE MOSTLY FROM ABOUT 2" TO 3" (GIVE OR TAKE) AND VARY IN COLOR WITH SOME BEING WHITE, YELLOWISH, RED OR BROWN AND COLLECTIVELY WEIGH APROX 17#.  PHOTO'S BELOW SHOW THE GROUP AND THEN DETAILED PHOTO'S OF SOME.
